Spice Up Your Dreary Winter Windows
Buz Carter's done several papercraft projects, often with retro-holiday flair (Halloween seems a favorite), so this season it's not surprising that he's added another old-time winter pasttime: paper snowflakes, though with an obvious undead slant. From his website:
My first attempt mistakenly began by folding the paper in successive halves -- yielding an 8-pointed Zombie Hawai´ian quilt pattern -- lovely, but a fairly unconvincing snowflake. So, it sat fallow, until last weekend when I did this 6-pointed version. (BTW, if you do make a zombie Hawai´ian quilt, please let me know -- it'd be awesome!)
That he's included some work-in-progress shots as a helpful tutorial makes this extra appealing.
I suspect that some of the pattern's intricate details might prove a scissoring challenge (I've not cut-out one yet, though do I intend to), such as the zombie-bite on the arm or the exposed brain in the zombieflake's forehead.
It's A Zombie Haiku Christmas
Once on Christmas eve,
with one infected fruitcake
the world fell apart.
